administration's foreign policy team began today as the president nominated massachusetts senator john kerry to replace hilary clinton as secretary of state. the former presidential candidate who lost to george w. bush in 2004 got the nod after u.n. ambassador susan rice withdrew her name. she'd faced republican criticisms over the benghazi terrorist attack. president obama made the announcement this afternoon at the white house. >> i am very proud to announce my choice for america's next secretary of state, john kerry. in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. having served with valor in vietnam, he understands that we have a responsibility to use american power wisely, especially our military power. and he knows, from personal experience, that when we send our troops into harm's way, we must give them the sound strategy, a clear mission, and the resources that they need to get the job done. in an extraordinarily distinguished senate career and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john has played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly

and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john's played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly 30 years. as we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we've got to harness all elements of american power and ensure that they're working together. >> secretary clinton wasn't present for the announcement. she's still recovering from a concussion. but in a statement she said that kerry is an excellent choice. north korean state media is reporting a u.s. citizen has been arrested in north korea for committing an unspecified crime. they say a tour guide entered north korea more than a month ago, was eventually detained after evidence was uncovered of some sort of crime. this comes ten days after a u.s. official said an american with a similar name was detained in the country. washington has not confirmed if it's actually the same man. >>> an "outfront" update to a story we brought you last night, russia's lower house of parliament has adopted a bill that bans americans from adopting russian children. pretty important when you consider that more than 45,
